As the Me Too movement in India gathers momentum, fresh allegations of sexual harassment have been levied against former journalist and the current Minister of State for External Affairs MJ Akbar. Female journalist Priya Ramani published a detailed account of him violating consent when he was a journalist.

Akbar found support in fellow Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Udit Raj who questioned why it took 10 years for the woman to make sexual charges. He doubted whether the truth in the case would be properly investigated. “One needs to realise the degree of damage caused to a person facing such false accusations. This (#MeToo) is the beginning of a wrong trend,” he tweeted and reiterated the same in a telephonic conversation to ABP News.
